Philosophical Conversation

15


15 per session - Virtual OK

Literally, we can talk about any philosophical concepts or ideas. Sharing ideas and challenging those ideas through constructive collaboration is one of the best ways for us to gain new insights about our values and the bigger picture of the world in which we live.

Training & Qualifications


Have you ever wondered...?
-Is war a necessary evil?
-Is there an edge to the universe?
- What is the root of evil? What makes a sociopath?
- What created the universe?
- Problem of evil: Why do bad things happen to good people?
- Is our destiny in life determined by some unseen force? Or do we truly have free will?
-Plato's Allegory of the Cave: Is our reality an illusion? Is our reality a simulation?

I'm a life-long learner. I like having conversations about anything that is backed with a valid supporting argument. After all, it is logic that underpins philosophy. But after that one prerequisite, productive philosophical conversation can take off in any direction!
Relevant Coursework:
-Intro to Philosophy
-Living Religions
-Ancient Texts of the Modern Bible
-Logic and Discrete Structures
-Philosophy of Science

I recently read "The New Science of Consciousness" and have collected evidence on current scientific principles in the fields of neuroscience, complexity science, artificial intelligence, and network theory. These fields of study contribute to a greater understanding of consciousness, but it's possible that consciousness lies outside the limits of science. For now, consciousness is still a very intriguing philosophical topic!

About Ben Hanson

Hello! My name is Ben and I'm currently enrolled in a teacher licensure program. I have a M.A in mathematics and that is the field I am most passionate about. After mathematics, I enjoy learning abou...t science; especially physics and cosmology as these fields are inherently more mathematical and describe the intricate dynamics of our universe. I look forward to offering some of my knowledge and experience to you. I want to help my community through my skills and interests.show more
